Whip It Good: 1927 Willys Whippet


I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a car driving down the street and shouted out “my, that’s a good looking Whippet.” I can’t tell you because I’ve never done it, and that’s because I just discovered the existence of the Willys Whippet a few minutes ago when I found this next car and then found a pretty thorough summation of the Whippet by Hemmings (thanks DuckDuckGo, you are a good search engine and don’t sell my info to Google). Apparently the Whippet is a dependable, easy-driving antique pre-war car that sold almost a quarter-million per year and it has the most amazing center-of-the-wheel mounted combo turn signals/parking light/head light switch. Find this 1927 Willys Whippet offered for $11,000 in San Francisco, CA via craigslist.
